Food stamp cut may put pressure on local food pantries

Link/Healthy Lifestyle Link on effect of Food Stamp Cuts

From The New York Times: Cut in Food Stamps Forces Hard Choices on Poor With reduced benefits starting this month, many recipients are buying fewer groceries and planning visits to food pantries to tide them over. Cut in Food Stamps forces hard choices on poor

The link was prompted by Adair Countian Mary Keltner. CM will be following how this affects demands at local Food Pantries and how Adair Countians step up to help those who need help facing this added stress. (If any reader can find the number/percentage of Adair Countians or residents of Casey, Cumberland, Green, Metcalfe, Russell and/or Taylor Counties who participate in the food stamp program please submit link. If a reader is personally affected by the change, we'd also welcome those comments - CM)
